The SCITT is a natural addition to the teacher training already offered by the partnership.

In addition to providing QTS certification, The Tommy Flowers SCITT MK offers a PGCE Masters level qualification.

 
 

Wearable Technology

Oakgrove School has taken the decision to ban wearable technology e.g. Apple watches.
These items can be used as communication devices just like a mobile phone and go against our policy of having mobile phones off during the school day.
They are also incredibly expensive and we would not want to see a student lose or damage an item such as this while at school.

If you are intending on buying such a device please be aware that students will not be allowed to wear them at school.
If a student is found to have wearable technology then this will be treated in the same manner as using a mobile phone.

Welcome from the Headteacher

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the website for Oakgrove School, an academy at the heart of learning, proudly serving the communities of south-east Milton Keynes. Oakgrove has now been open for over ten years and our reputation as a caring academy, setting very high academic standards in a traditional, disciplined and exceptionally well resourced environment is well known.

I am fortunate enough to be leading an outstanding school, with gifted and hardworking staff. Parents and Carers can look forward to their son or daughter being taught by some of the most well qualified teachers in any school, and supported by associate staff that make every effort for students to enjoy their time at Oakgrove, whether in the classroom, on the sports field, during after-school clubs or one of the many trips offered.

Oakgrove’s focus is always on high quality teaching and learning. Students are set individual targets that are regularity reviewed and we set teaching groups according to ability. The delivery of our curriculum in all the Key Stages allows students to develop transferable skills, intellectual understanding and a passion for learning that will enable them to succeed in public examinations, and also enables our students to become lifelong learners, who will excel in workplace and beyond.

I hope this website provides you with the information you need and gives an insight into this wonderful school.

Yours faithfully,

Ian Tett
Headteacher
